    Hi, I have just watched you video on Basic Editing Shortcuts & Transitions using Sony Vegas. After you added the text (Test Project), is it possible to add sound such as music while the Test project roll at the beginning>

    When I trim a video and and preview, it plays black screen until it gets to the part I want to show. How can I change the beginning to be after the trim area. I can't get rid of the time on the time line.

      I am having a lot of trouble in trying to understand exactly what you mean.
      Can you send some screen shots to me of your Vegas timeline to show me what you have done ?
